Researchers have achieved an open voltage perovskite-cSi tandem cell with an open circuit (Voc) voltage of 1.65 V and a conversion efficiency of 13.7%. The team from MIT and Stanford report its work has identified key challenges...
Firm to use money to help develop its Smart Off-Grid technology.
The funds will assist the demonstration and deployment of Bosch's direct-current building-scale micro-grid platform, which the company says will provide a more reliable and resilient power supply to critical loads.
German PV equipment supplier Schmid is promoting its PERT technology as resulting in significantly reduced light-induced degradation than occurs in PERC multicrystalline cells. PERT refers to Passivated Emitter Rear Totally...
A study released today has found that solar can supply more than 60% of electricity demand in the remote town of Alice Springs and the grid remain stable. The study concludes that an additional 10 MW of PV can be added to the...
German PV production equipment supplier Singulus has booked a "substantial" order for process machines for the production of "high performance" solar cells. The order, in the "double digit of millions," brings Singulus' solar...
UK-based perovskite technology developer Oxford PV has closed an £8 million (US$12.15 million) first-tranche B equity round to continue to develop its solar perovskite technology. The round doubles the amount of equity...
This latest generation of the company's kerfless wafer production machinery, which avoids feedstock waste by forming wafers directly from molten silicon, is designed to make more than 5 MW per year.
The Dresden-based organic PV provider is partnering with vTrium Energy on a pilot program that will contribute to the creation of a base for Singapore's future energy mix while also delivering comprehensive data on the...
Researchers replaced intermediate films consisting of cadmium sulfide and zinc oxide with zinc oxysulfide and zinc magnesium oxide. As a buffer layer, zinc oxide-sulfide is more transparent to light in the blue wavelength range,...
Hanwha Solar has again submitted a polycrystalline module from the HSL 60 Poly series for testing by PV + Test. Achieving improvements, particularly in performance, the module was rated Good (+).
Financed by the European Commission, the Performance Plus project was launched with the goal of making PV systems more reliable and cost-effective and improving their overall performance.
Device has been developed for PV projects that are planned in 1 MW generation blocks and will form part of SMA's Medium Voltage Power Station.
The new record for cadmium-telluride cell conversion efficiency certified at the Newport Corporation's Technology and Applications Center lab boosts First Solar's research roadmap.
Higher efficiencies and levelized costs of electricity at levels similar to ordinary PV reported as CPV sector set to grow in 2015.
Announcements arrives amid international cooperation on off-grid technology
